Certified pre-owned "very good" or "great" condition

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

Does anyone have experience with PM's "very good" or "great" condition iphones, in terms of actual physical condition, battery life, etc? 


I'm considering picking up one but not sure if it's better to hold out and pay extra for one that's "like new". The descriptions on the site are helpful but am worried they down play condition.

Which phone are you considering?


Like new has been reported to be open box just without the plastic wrapping. But I don't have any personal experience with phones sold by pm. I am very good at finding a deal.....


Edit: Where are you located?

@RB11  the phones come with a 30 day money back guarantee.


So it might be worth the risk if the price is good

Looking at the iphone 7 or 8 vs a new iPhone se. Don't want anything too expensive because I'm too clumsy! The return period and 1 yr warranty is what has me thinking about them vs cheaper local options in the Ottawa area

If you are getting an buying iPhone, it's good to get it from PM for the 1 year warranty. 


The certified pre-owned phones are generally sourced from customer returns with very little usage.  As an example, these usage limits come from Koodo's 15 day return policy.  I have previously purchased pre-owns via Koodo but not Public Mobile.  The phones are pretty much brand new.  If the price is attractive, there is very little risk in the purchase.

I received as new, a phone from Public Mobile webstore  this week.

As per new---- new plastic  film applied over screen.

Charger and cord in factory seal.

With 1! year warranty from telus  this is a really good buy.

Thanks to everyone for the input so far - definitely showing the value of the PM community!


@farmbot - was the phone you ordered called "Like New" condition by PM, or was it " Very Good" or "Great" condition? Really trying to figure out what those "Very Good" or "Great" ones are actually like to decide if I should pay more for "Like New" condition. Sounds like you may have got a "Like New" one.
